The concerts have a sort of narrative flow to them, sometimes they are on the whole show, sometimes they are not having a good time, but mostly it ebbs and flows . And I don't know too many Dead shows that have five songs of "absolute trash" to one good one .
That said, there is a place for highlights listening . The fast forward button, or the skip one is your friend . It is funny you feel the Looks Like Rain pain also . Sometimes I let it go, other times , life is too short . I feel the same about Throwing Stones .
What is special about this band, is what happens live, sometimes the shell, to crab meat ration is a bit too high though ! This post was modified by Dudley Dead on 2019-09-10 16:26:25

Excellent point. There are a good number of shows that are more than the sum of their parts. An example that pops to mind for me is the Augusta 84 Dew show. Surely one of my faves, but I will be the first to admit not every song is a masterpiece. However, even with these (Don't Need Love, I'm looking at you) I will more often than not listen to the entire show start to finish, preferring to get the whole feel of the show.
